Efficient Metals Impact Testing To Charpy And Izod Standards

The MPX Series of motorized pendulum impact testers from Instron are essential for metals impact testing to Charpy and Izod standards.

Instron (Norwood, MA), a leading provider of testing equipment designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components, offers the MPX Series of motorized pendulum impact testers that are essential for metals impact testing to Charpy and Izod standards.

Key advantages of the MPX include:
Automatic Test Start
The MPX is designed with an automatic test start as soon as the door closes, allowing for rapid testing and improving throughput while conforming to the international standards for non-ambient testing. The feature fully complies with NIST 5 second guidelines, specifying the time it should take for the specimen to leave the temperature conditioner and for the test to be complete.

A demonstration of the latest MPX Motorized Impact Testing System features automatic test start at door closure for efficient testing and adherence to standards for non-ambient specimen testing.

Interchangeable Hammer Weights
Most other pendulum impact testers on the market still require the hammer assembly to be completely removed in order to change weights. On the MPX, interchangeable hammer weights allow for  quick and simple adjustment of the impact energy, removing the need for the time-consuming process of changing hammer shafts.

The MPX features an integrated guard and safety control system that meets the stringent requirements for the European CE mark and for ISO 13849. Your operator is protected at all times during machine operation.
